Maybe you are correct, but I am ALWAYS the ONLY mopar there and mine is a pump gas small block on motor only. The only ones faster are nos or big blocks or tube chassis cars. My neighbor has a yates headed small block ford in a Mustang that weighs 2800 and runs 6.60's on motor.

This happens with EVERY brand. Be it a Mopar, Ford or Chevy, there are loads of cars out there which run to nowhere near their potential, just like there are some of every brand that are over achievers.

So I am assuming your comparison is just based on your immediate friends..........because I know there is no way you are claiming you have the quickest vehicle at your weight, with the same cube N/A smallblock of any kind, any where


Only at the tracks I race at. Not everywhere.

Most people get or got into Mopars, because they were different, were not belly button cars like everyone else had, or were brought into it by someone else. That someone else for me, was my dad. In the 50s and 60s, he made a regular habit of taking brands that nobody else around here seemed to care much about and make it outrun all his friends..............His first serious effort "hot rod" was a 65 GTO tri-power car, that was a terror on the streets and track around here and old timers still talk to me about the car. Later on, he got on the Mopar kick and ordered a brand new, 70 model 6 pack Challenger, that later became an NHRA SS/GA national record holder. He remained Mopar from that 70 purchase until this day and I followed suit.........BUT, it was different then. Yes the cars were different from most others on the road, but they also performed well and could be made to run as well or better than the other makes. Once the aftermarket got involved heavily, all that changed and it is a well known fact that we as Mopar guys lament every day. The days of affordable and equal HP for dollars spent for the Mopar guys is a non existent thing and we all KNOW it. The thing that keeps most loyal to the brand, is simply the love of the brand and the fond memories of yesteryear. These days, a person new to hot rodding, will again be looking to Mopar in the quest to be different, but the difference now, is it is nearly impossible for him to out run his buddies off brand, given equal money spent and knowledge applied. The parts simply are not there and again, we KNOW it

I went Gen III Hemi so I can eat all the LS cars around here and still be "Mopar". So far I have done just that, until half of them add boost. Mopar has dropped the ball on these engines too by not producing anything aftermarket worth a damn too.

Mr P , I am just stating facts. I guess all my chevy friends around here just don't know what they are doing. And its been that way since the 80's. They all say why are you faster with less motor.

I would like to know how this thread got changed over to Mopar VS the world on the Street Outlaw thread . The show only has 1 mopar morphidite that appears once in awhile and is a heck of a lot faster, OH, it's Chevy powered than most or should I say all mopars that are posting here.

If your throwing 1000hp worth of gas at a Cheavy, the chances of them running good are pretty good.

No Street Outlaws on TV for awhile. This might help over-come the withdrawal pains. LOL

This might be the only brand specific forum where most the members argue about how slow and crappy their brand of vehicles are.

Fastest car on the "list" until it rolled wasn't a Chevy either.

I forgot where he said it, but Chief mentioned that his Eddy heads flow 350 cfm on the intake side. He didn't say at what lift.

Murder nova finished the tv season #1.
They have since filmed more episodes.
We do not know who #1 is/was at the time of the crash, since that hasn't been televised yet.

If you follow the guys on social media then you know.
I bet you didn't know that several of the guys are building new cars, boosted GT, Murder nova, and the new crow.
Then the reaper has his motor for sale since he's upgrading lol
Drag racers are a small community. I bet one or two of the guys have been on this site lurking before. Plus Monty Hanging out helps a bunch.

There have been lots of "list" races and there is currently a new No.1 and No.2. Chief dropped off, everybody moved up one and then some guys changed places racing.

New cars coming........Chief. And regardless of what was posted on the McAmis facebook page, Murder Nova does NOT have a new McAmis car. He WILL have a new steel bodied Nova, but it is being built by Don Dial and is nearly done. Boosted has a new big tire car and Chuck has put big tires on the Mustang. Monza is putting the Split Bumper on a diet with a serious upgrade and Doc is planning the same. Reaper is actually putting a SMALLER motor in his car, as the one that is in there is a bad combination. He is also converting to EFI as many of the others have and the car should be HERE in a few days for me to get started on that. He is also building a "new" lighter car and plans to run both. Dave's Nova is obviously ready and the motor that was in Henson's Vette, is going in another car that will get a crack at the list. The guy with the blown 55, that was in cash days, has purchased a Top Sportsman 55 Chevy from one of my customers and will be taking his shot............Lots of new and diff cars coming

Saturdays podcast from PRI he said they flowed about 340 and were an inline valve head. Has a cast block too which I found interesting.

Chef has Edelbrock heads on his set up? Really? Nothing exotic?
